If farm animals are just not cute enough for you to save, perhaps you should take this from an environmental perspective (just in case the obvious critical health conditions due to over-consumption of meat wasn't enough). Take a look around you. Don't you just hate how all those stupid planes, busses, cars, and trains pollute our earth? It sucks. What sucks even more is that all these combined amount to only 1% of the problem.
Let's take a look at populations. There are roughly 7.3 billion people on earth (11.6% malnourished or starving). There are 1.5 billion cows, 1 billion pigs and sheep, and 19 BILLION CHICKENS - disregarding wild animals. All these animals are bound to use a little room. 26% of the planet's ice-free land is used for livestock grazing and 33% of croplands are used for livestock feed production. In order to profit, supply must rise with demand. Unfortunately, we cannot play "supply and demand" with availability of earth - leading to mass deforestation. Wild animals get hunted, killed, and disposed of. And because we killed all the trees, methane emissions are through the roof. Or should I say, through the thinning ozone layer. If we replaced all this land for crop production, the cheap pricing and availability can potentially end world hunger. Unfortunately, your burger is just too delicious, right?
Water is a precious resource but only 1% of the earth's water is freshwater. We try to conserve by taking quick showers and turning faucets off when not in use. Let's see just how much you're wasting with the meals you eat. When you consume one pound of meat, you waste 1,799 gallons of water. One pound of pork takes 576 gallons of water. In comparison, the water footprint of soybeans is 216 gallons, and corn is 108 gallons. Damn.
If you're worried about nutrition, don't be. You can get every nutrient you need from even a balanced vegan diet. The only factors missing would be vitamin B12 and Omega-3. You can take both in supplement. If you're not ready to drop meat-eating entirely, that's ok. Eating meat once a month or even once a week is massive help. Spread the word. Thanks for reading.
